Bananarama’s Keren Woodward Says of Reuniting with Original Trio After 30 Years: ‘It’s Like We’ve Never Been Apart’

The three founding members of Bananarama spent many cruel summers apart since Sibohan Fahey left the group in 1988. But after almost 30 years, the ladies have reunited to hit the road together for the first time.

“It just seemed like such a tragedy that we hadn’t done it when we shared sort of the prime years,” Keren Woodward tells PEOPLE of never getting to tour with Fahey. “This is just a proper celebration of that period.”

Woodward, 56, and fellow Bananarama cofounder Sara Dallin went on to release numerous albums and tour together, joined by Jacquie O’Sullivan from 1988–91. Meanwhile, Fahey moved to Los Angeles and formed the pop-rock duo Shakespears Sister. But the original trio never lost touch.

“The last few years when we managed to get together for evenings and dinners and stuff, we just had such a laugh,” Woodward says. “Once we got together, it was so obvious that it was going to work.”

Though Bananarama isn’t working on new music just yet, they’ve begun rehearsals for their Original Line Up tour that kicks off its U.K. dates in November. They’ll also come to the U.S. for four shows in February.

“It’s kind of like we’ve never been apart,” Woodward gushes.
